evening. breaking news tonight in new york, where after days without power from hurricane sandy, the lights are beginning to slowly go back on in lower manhattan and beyond. it is slow, but it is happening. mayor michael bloomberg says most of the power in manhattan should return by midnight tonight, although some people will be left without it for another week. sandy is gone, but misery continues as so many devastated. today the death toll climbed to 97 people. staten island neighborhoods swept away. homeland security secretary janet napolitano toured the area, vowing to do everything she could to help. plus, after insisting this sunday's new york city marathon would go on, mayor bloomberg canceled the race. many were outraged the city would take valuable efforts away from the recovery efforts for the marathon. tonight, city hall and race officials have called it off. meanwhile, look at this. cars lined up for miles to get gas. drivers in some cases waiting 20 hours as the supply dwindles, fighting with each other. there's one report that a guy pu pulled a gun at one gas statio
of hurricane sandy, i thought that he was a strong leader in the week and certainly helped by governor christie endorsing that view. not everyone agreed, though. i had a pretty feisty exchange with rudy giuliani on friday. want to play you a little clip of what he said about the president. >> i don't know what the heck he was doing in nevada while people are still being discovered dead in new york. if i were the president of the united states, i sure wouldn't be flitting around the midwest and the west and my job would be making sure this thing was followed through to the very end. >> what is your reaction to that? >> well, rudy giuliani might be the only person in america who believes that. i know he's a former mayor of new york but the current mayor of new york, the governors of new jersey, connecticut, new york, local officials, they know this president and his administration are working every day to stand by them. so i think that the president, as we have been campaigning these last few days, every moment he's not on the stage, he's on the phone. he was today, with governors and local offic
by hurricane sandy, which caused many problems for many people of a very real nature. in relation to the politics, it certainly stopped mitt romney's momentum firmly in the tracks for a week because he couldn't get on television and allowed barack obama to be a president for a week in a time of crisis and did it very well. in fact, chris christie raise ro laud him. nate silva, that genius pollster of pollsters from "the new york times" just tweeted this, a few more polls to add, but obama at 91% to win the electoral college based on all the data to date. he noticed there's been a clear shift toward obama in national polls based on the most recent data, he may lead by 2% in the popular vote too. that's the first time over 90% and i think the first time he said that obama will comfortably win by 2% in the popular vote. what do you say to that? >> first of all, piers, you asked me about -- here's an alternative universe. you say this person of "the new york times" has come to the startling discovery that in "the new york times" universe, obama is going to win. i point out two of the
about the fiscal cliff? how about sandy happens and we're not doing anything about climate change? there's a scandal. >> or about going -- having access to people's e-mails and wiretapping and all that, that's probably a bigger scandal than this and something that warrants discussion. andrew, i did have to say, i was on an airplane when this news broke and the people i was sitting next to, we were all like, really? this guy's going to resign over an affair? did he give away military codes or secrets? nobody could understand why this was such a big deal. i don't get it. >> yeah, i think i had the same reaction. but one thing that makes this fundamentally different than a lot of the washington sex scandals that we've seen is that david petraeus still gets about $12,000 a month in military pension. under federal law as a retired officer receiving a pension, he's still subject to the uniform code of military justice. and adultery is a crime under the ucmj. that might be really unbelievable for a lot of civilians, but it's a crime. people do time in the brig for it. i think based on some of t
storm sandy, what i've done with three or four other storms and blizzards and tornadoes, is you put your people and your state first. partisanship goes out the window when you've got a natural disaster and you do what you do to take care of your people. so i think there were numerous other factors that had to do with the reason that we didn't pick up seats in the senate, the president won, and no, look, we're a united group. piers, we got 30 republican governors, the most in 12 years for either party, 180 million people have republican governors. we have gone from 22 to 30 republican governors since chris christie and i won in 2009. at the state level, people are electing conservative results oriented can-do, positive, optimistic republican governors. that's what we're doing and that's why bobby jindal, chris christie and scott walker will be leading the organization going forward. we're going to continue to win. >> what do you make of what's going on with all these generals? there seems to be something in the air. >> well, i spent a fair amount of time in the military myself, 21 years,
super storm sandy hit. >>> we begin with the big story. the latest on the benghazi hearings. joining me is pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. welcome to you both. barbara, this is really fascinating me. so general petraeus who has been at the center of this huge scandal tomorrow morning will testify at a congressional hearing about benghazi, and your information from a very good source, i think is really, really significant. it's basically, i have been listening to you for the last couple of hours, petraeus basically says he knew the moment this happened that it was a group called answar al sharia and that after that there was a stream of other intelligence saying it may be linked to the video we all knew about but his belief was always that it was this group and they had to rule out the other intelligence before they could officially confirm it. is that right? >> that's pretty close to it, piers. very good source of mine who is directly familiar with what general petraeus plans to try and say on capitol hill tomorrow behind closed doors i
